Description of Location

Souls on Board

Despite continued cool evenings and some overcast days that blocked the sun, we have indeed reached the EQUATOR! In a voluntary event to mark the first-time passage across the Line for all but four members of our ship's company, we paused our daily routine for some fun activities to mark the transition from "pollywogs" to "shellbacks" under the direct supervision of King Neptune and the Monarch of the Sea's court. Perhaps you will hear more about this and our continued voyage under sail toward our first port stop in upcoming blogs. Stay tuned!

Fair Winds!
